World Diabetes Day: Access to insulin remains a challenge in many African countries
Issued on: Modified:
November 14 is World Diabetes Day. The disease affects over 400 million people globally. In Africa, three quarters of people with diabetes don't even know they have it. Also, Cameroon's President Paul Biya announces a special status for English-speaking regions, in an effort to appease the three-year Anglophone separatist conflict that's left thousands dead and displaced. And finally, the world's first opera in Pidgin English debuts in Nigeria. Its creator says she wants more Nigerians to enjoy the musical genre.
